Mike posted earlier today about Semyon Varlamov and goalie coaching, and most of the links in that post were directed to articles I've written on The Goalie Guild about the subject. So I figured his questions at the end deserved a response from yours truly. I discuss why a full-time coach will always trump a part-time coach, no matter who is in goal and what type of talent or experience they have, along with many other sub-topics.
Be advised, this is a long piece, over 2,500 words. I like to write. Enjoy!
